Upon a rewatch I noticed a few more things: At the beginning, up until around the "movie" there were a few other couples that held hands - Remy and Rob did - for a short while, and so did Melissa and her husband (what is his name?). I thought I saw Porscha and Byron holding hands for a brief second, but I can't be sure. There were a few scenes where Melissa and ? leaned in towards each other, and Danni and Marlon leaned in or on each other almost constantly. In almost every scene, however, Seth was leaning as far away from Kirsten as humanly possible. I also noticed that in the talking heads, it's pretty much only Danni and Marlon that look at each other. To me, it's those little things that tell how much people care about their partners and their chances of making it.
I also caught Byron saying when Porscha fights, she puts her hands up into fists - and he also said that she came after him with a knife once. That is one HUGE red flag for me, and I hope it is talked about during the show - women can be the perpertrators of domestic violence just as much as men can. And coming at someone with a knife? That's domestic violence. Period. They both need loads of therapy with a qualified psychologist.
I go back and forth on whether Kirsten is acting or not - if she's not, she needs serious therapy and I'm still not sure it would do any good. And if she is.... then she needs a reality check. She's not going to get handed a TV show because she comes across as infantile and mentally unstable on a trashtastic WE reality show. Seth looks completely over her in every shot I saw, but he also looked that way during the Bridezillas episode and he still married her. I wonder who in his family she had (or still has) locked up at gunpoint, honestly. He just looks completely resigned to misery in every single shot.
If some of these couple grow up I can see a couple of marriages making it: Danni and Marlon for sure and possibly Melissa and ???. With lots of individual therapy, I can see Porscha and Byron making it - but not otherwise. Meathead and Brat? Not so much. She's a starter wife and he's a walking wallet. Kirsten and Seth? I don't think they'll ever be happy together. I also don't know if I see them breaking up - she comes across as so unstable - like she'd be the type to threaten suicide if he mentioned leaving. I sincerely hope they are the next ones to get nicknames.
As for the promo? There is no way in hell you could get me to voluntarily climb in a coffin, so I have no problem with Melissa's freak out about it. And I still think the "bad mother" promo is directed at her, or possibly Kirsten.
